STADSKERNONDERZOEK AAN DE EEWAL, LEEUWARDEN (FR.)
This article deals with the results of an excavation that took place in the city centre of Leeuwarden (Friesland) in the autumn of 1998. As the site was being prepared for new constructions, the topsoil, including late medieval and subrecent traces, had already been removed before the investigation started. Remains of medieval wooden structures were discovered. Five different phases were distinguished, not necessarily representing different buildings, but probably also alterations to an existing building. During the occupation the site was artificially raised by a considerable amount in order to avoid flooding. Dendro-samples dated the occupation between the late 10th/early 11th and the early 12th century AD.
